(95) Alexander Glover, the second son of Alexander and Sarah (Salisbury) Glover, was born in Conway, Mass., March 6, 1789 and resides in Webster, NY. He removed from Conway to Phelps, N.Y., and thence to Webster, N.Y. He owns a large landed estate there, which is said to be under high cultivation. For many years he has devoted his attention to agricultural pursuits. He has been thrice married. First, July 4, 1816, he was married to Abigail Reese Powell, who died Sept. 10, 1837, and by her he had three children, one of whom survives. Second to Clarissa Hawley, and lived with her 12 years; she died in 1840. Third to Mrs Eliza (Field) Tompkins, widow. They have no issue. She was the daughter of Stephen Salisbury, Esq., of Ypsilanti, Michigan, and first cousin to Mr. Glover. Stephen Salisbury, her father, was the youngest brother of Sarah Salisbury, the mother of Alexander Glover. The mother of Mrs. Glover was a daughter of the Rev. J. Powell, of the Presbyterian Church oin New York City, who emigrated from Wales to that city, and was pastor of a church there for several years. He afterwards removed to Phelps, N.Y.

Children of Alexander and Abigail Reese (Powell) Glover, born in Phelps, N. Y.:

 205. Jonathan Edwards b Dec 5, 1819; d Dec 23, 1846, aged 27
 206. Mary Ellen, b Mch 15, 1812; d young

+207. William Powell, b Sept 7, 1823; m. Mary Caroline Hammond

Note: I believe that Mary Ellen's date of birth should be March 15, 1822 as the couple did not marry until 1816 and in all the entries in the book the dates are arranged in correct order. (CAG 6/2005)

Note: If Clarissa Hawley, his second wife, died in 1840 and they were married 12 years, they were married in 1828. Since Abigail Rees did not died until 1837 I believe these dates to be in error.
